This Fabulous Whole Wheat Fettuccine is delicious, nutritious pasta boasts 6 grams of fiber and 390 mg of ALA omega 3 yet still has the same amazing home-made. "tender, but firm" texture that has made Al Dente Pasta famous since 1981. Here's to good food and good health.
I’ve been on a fruti di mare kick for more than a month now. Just thinking about it makes me want black mussels, tiny sweet clams and big, barely cooked shrimp and a spicy red sauce, over pasta of course. Here’s the thing. I’m very impatient. Not a self-deprecation, it’s just the way it is. That means I don’t want to wait. So, while I cook faster than the average bear, I still want it nearly now. Okay, now. Lucky for me, shellfish loves hasty schedule, cooking to perfection within minutes. A good sauce takes a bit longer and pasta a whole 15 minutes, including bringing water to a boil. I came up with this expeditious recipe that uses some of my favorite prepared ingredients. I stop on my way home and buy fresh shellfish. I fill up a pot with cold water and start boiling. By the time my pasta is aldente, my fruit di mare is perfection and I’m whirling like a Dervish. Here’s my speedy recipe. by Annabel Cohen
The inside scoop at Al Dente Pasta is that we put the final touches on our Golden Egg Pappardelle and Garlic Parsley Pappardelle. You’ll be happy to know that even though it is considerably wider than our fettuccine, it still cooks in 3-4 minutes. Because of its width, however, it holds up beautifully under sauces that were sometimes a little too heavy for our other noodles.
The search is over! I have found and perfected the most delicious Turkey Tetrazzini recipe of all time. I need to suggest, maybe even insist, that you use really good ingredients, especially if you want it to turn out as good as mine did last night. Al Dente Pasta, of course! Fresh grated Parmesan cheese, panko breadcrumbs,flavorful mushrooms–you get the idea.
This is a classic delicious combination of pasta, shrimp, basil, and sun-dried tomatoes. Great for the holiday season but also at any season of the year.

It's no surprize that Tom DeVries gave us a recipe combining cheese with pasta. After all, his company, the R.Hirt Jr. Co. in Detroit's Eastern Market, is one of the area's finest distributors of specialty foods and cheeses. They were Al Dente's very first distributor back in 1982.
